About Joe

My name is Joe. I'm a home improvement specialist. I am also a vocalist and singing is my greatest love besides my beautiful wife Renee.

Renee is and Pastor of a small church in Royal Oak and is well known in or city for all her loving outreach. She also is a very accomplished speaker.

Joe purchased this house in 2014

Why Joe chose Northern Michigan

We were so very fortunate this year. Our neighbor offered to sell us her lake home as she needed to move on because of her age. After we closed on the property we did several improvements to make it as enjoyable for our visitors. We also re- constructed the beach front area and brought in 60 yards of sand. Lots for the kids to play in!

What makes this house unique

This home has a beautiful veiw of the lake, a large yard and the homes on our street have large yards for playing. You are not crammed together like many lakefronts. Our end of the lake is very queit with little boat traffic

Guestbook comments from the owner

We stayed the weekend at this nicely refinished home. What a kitchen! The theme rooms were adorable, the nautical and swan rooms were very special.The beach was beautiful and wow what a view. The beds and furniture were very confortable and the baths and shower heads were awesome. I feel spoiled now. Everything you need is right at your finger tips. We packed way too much. We will definitey be back this summer with some friends and we are going to rent the pontoon too. Very nice boat.

Great place for family vacation

  • 5 of 5

Thanks Joe for letting me rent your beautiful lake house. We loved the house, boat, and sandy beach. My wife and son loved the water and beach. We will definitely be coming back next summer. Oh and best of all was the weed eater for the seaweed it was a life saver if you have kids that hate seaweed. House was great size and very clean.

Wiggins Lake cottage did not disappoint!

  • 5 of 5

Absolutely a wonderful cottage! This is our second year renting from Joe, his cottages are clean and comfortable. This cottage has a bunk house, it was perfect for 2 of our sons, they could stay up late and have their own space, our grand daughter is 3 1/2 her uncles love her but sometimes you just need to get away! . The kitchen large and kitchen table was large enough for all of us to eat together. We enjoyed the pontoon boat, great sand bar on lake, we would pack lunches and go play in the afternoons.

Husband and boys went golfing right around the corner, nice course, and not too pricey.

We will for sure be back again, for family vacation!

Relaxing Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

This home is very clean, updated and situated on a large lot. The additional guest house is brand new and very useful as we were staying with multi-family and the king size bed was new and comfortable. Overall the interior of the home is bright and open providing a lot of space to move around for living, cooking and dining. The kitchen was generously appointed with dishware, good knives, pots and bake ware so you don’t need to bring much more than your groceries. Having two bathrooms and two showers is always a plus on vacation.

The beach is large, sandy and clean with the bonus of being on a shallower quiet cove of the lake. This kept boat and ski traffic out of the area and allowed for peaceful kayak and paddle boating by the kids without the fear of being run over. The pontoon boat is new and clean providing several afternoon and evening cruises up to the dam and around the lake. Our week was relaxing and the owners were very responsive to any needs we had.
